Sportsbet pay out $6m on Incentivise to win Melbourne Cup

It’s a very happy Wednesday for those who backed star galloper Incentivise in the 2021 Melbourne Cup with Sportsbet opting to pay out on him for Australia’s greatest race.

Incentivise, trained by Peter Moody, rocketed into Melbourne Cup favouritism following his demolition job in last weekend’s Caulfield Cup and on Tuesday afternoon, he was the $2.60 firm favourite.

Sportsbet has announced that all single and multi bets placed on the 2021 Melbourne Cup market before 5:00pm (AEDT) on 19/10/21 have been paid out.

Sportsbet’s Felix Von Hofe told SEN Breakfast that $6 million had already been paid out.

“There are a lot of happy punters, about $6 million going out to the punters on this early payout,” he said.

“A lot of people getting around those prices for $20 and $40 because Incentivise was a very popular horse.”
